Rog: I can impose myself

Newly-signed Napoli and Croatia international midfielder Marko Rog says he is looking to make waves at his new club, but admits that he has a lot to learn.

The Serie A outfit secured the 21-year-old Croat's signature on a season-long loan from Dinamo Zagreb and Rog says he is willing to sit on the bench if needs be.

"You don't perceive fatigue when you're playing for Croatia," he told website Vecernji

"I was in Naples for about three days and then I came here."

"[Coach Maurizio] Sarri introduced me to the others and [Ivan] Strinic is helping me out with the tongue," he said.

Despite Naploi president Aurelio De Laurentiis singing Rog's praises on his arrival, the youngster might have to be content with substitute appearances having to contend with experienced campaigners in Emanuele Giaccherini and Marek Hamsik for a spot in Sarri's starting eleven. 

"I hope I can impose myself, but otherwise I'm not scared of the bench. I intend to change the hierarchies in the Azzurri stables."

"I'm young and I know I still have a lot to learn. My integration will be gradual," he concluded.
